Why Michael Flynn Was Set Up

Authored by Roger Simon via The Epoch Times,

The more we learn about the evils done to Michael Flynn, and they increase day by day, the more the FBI comes to resemble the KGB.

Or is it the earlier version, the NKVD, whose leader Lavrentiy Beria famously declared “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”

James Comey – the head of the FBI during this period of extraordinary moral turpitude – never said anything anywhere near that pithy or memorable but he did Beria one better. He, with Peter Strzok, whose feckless emails to his paramour continue to amaze, and various other bit players – some revealed others yet to be revealed – of this sorry saga, didn’t just find a crime, they invented one.

In all fairness, the Soviets, pre and post-Beria, often did the same, putting the darkness in “Darkness at Noon” with forced confessions as in the Metro-Vickers Affair (1933) when innocent Brits took the hit for the failure of Stalin’s “Five-Year Plan.”

What was really going on with what was essentially the “forced confession” of Michael Flynn?

Attorney Andrew C. McCarthy said on Tucker Carlson Thursday night that Flynn wasn’t the target. It was Trump. Flynn was just a “seasoned intelligence professional” (McCarthy’s words) who had to be implicated and put out of the way in order to reach the president, the real bull’s eye.

That’s likely true, but it’s also likely that wasn’t the only reason. Flynn was by himself a target.

During the transition, it is said Obama gave Trump two pieces of advice on whom he considered to be the current greatest threats to the United States, so the new president could be forearmed—Kim Jong-un and Michael Flynn.

Michael Flynn? (I’d add several exclamation points and question marks, but it’s tacky.). Why would he be of anywhere near that importance to be put in the same conversation as the nuclear-armed dictator of North Korea?

The answer, I believe, is a four letter word: Iran.

The Iran Deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA) was, with the Affordable Care Act, one of the twin pillars of Obama’s presidency on which he wanted to base his legacy.

I’m not going into here the many theories of why, beyond that legacy, Obama was so attached to the JCPOA, but, by the time Trump was elected, it was already under heavy criticism due to the Islamic Republic’s violent activities in the Syrian civil war and elsewhere, arming Hezbollah, Hamas, the Houthis and other proxies with moneys that came via America and—naive as it now sounds—were supposed to be for the improvement of the lives of the Iranian people.

Flynn was known to have been one of the most adamant opponents of the Iran Deal within the Obama administration in the first place and, with his military record as a three-star general plus aforementioned intelligence expertise, perhaps the most powerful one.

So bringing down Flynn was a two-for, striking a blow at the new president while hopefully helping to preserve the Iran Deal. The second part didn’t work, but the first did… for a while.

It’s therefore not totally surprising—what is these days?—that the newly-revealed documents have “SCO “ (Special Counsels Office) scrawled on them, among other incriminating notes indicating a “setup” was in the cards for Flynn.

That means these statements exculpating Trump’s newly-appointed National Security Adviser went to Mueller’s office where someone (Mueller? Weissman?) ignored them and continued with what Trump has colloquially, and I think too loosely, branded a “hoax.” It was far more than that. It was a form of defenestration.

When we look for the Mr. Big in all this, as we are tempted to do as—we can be more confident now— more rolls out, we should not settle for James Comey, as culpable as he may be. This bizarre character who self-identified on Twitter as the theologian Reinhold Niebuhr is not the end to the story.

We are looking at a Netflix series with a plot that gets increasingly complicated. It goes past Comey and into the intelligence agencies and the State Department—a real life version of “Scandal” with, I regret to tell show runner Shonda Rhymes, the liberals and progressives almost always the villains.

When it reaches Brennan and Obama, it may not even end there. Maybe even John Durham doesn’t know. (Kidding. I hope.)

  1. Obamotherfucker, Comey, McCabe, Strozk and Page need to be charged, prosecuted, convicted and sent to the butt fuck motel for at least 25 years. This cocksuckers need to go down.

  2. Obamotherfucker is a dumbass nigger cocksucker with shit for brains. The CIA needs to take this motherfucker out.

  3. Flynn was set up because the deep state became SO comfortable with their evil that they slipped up and made a few mistakes; and Flynn found out about them and blew the whistle.
    Obama fired him, Trump hired him.
    Obama was worried about his “legacy”, but I bet he was also worried the nation would find out how much his Iran deal profited his net worth.
    Obama’s Whitehouse was full of evil in every department and corridor. It’s all he sought out in his cabinet, appointments, associates, and assistants. If they had a shred of decency, he didn’t want them. They all had to have a dirty background or willingness to roll around in the swamp muck prove their loyalty to him.
    Obama was full of his arrogance and was convinced he could not be touched. He thinks he’s a genius. His minions got too complacent, as demons do when they have no fear of retaliation or conviction.
    Peter Strzok and James Comey are a fine examples; their TV interviews and hearings will forever portray them as arrogant and contemptuous deep state debase demons.
    Most of what we know now came from Sara Carter and John Solomon. Their tireless investigations into Obama’s corruption should be rewarded.

  4. Yes thanks to Sara Carter and John Solomon none of this corruptions would have seen the light of day.In Washington everything gets swept under the rug which they call justice.I hope they will keep investigating this case because in the end it will end up at the highest level of the Obama enabled COUP on an elected president.My wish is to see all the people who took part in this COUP put in jail for LIFE!
